Boston, Mass. 



Since its establishment, Simmons College has been |\ /I 

educating women to succeed in the world. Many have JL ▼ JL 

passed through the doors of the green-cupola building at 
300 The Fenway earning degrees in the Arts ,

Simmons education, however, is far more than a I 

certificate of accomplishment. 

The Simmons community itself is one of the 

greatest resources the school has to offer. Simmons g^

that make it more than a place to just learn what you can

A Look At The 
World Around Us 



Boston is a part of everyday life at 
Simmons. How could it not be? Every- 
one knows about John Hancock, the 
Museum of Fine Arts, and Cheers but 
did you know that... 

... the children's hook Make Way for 
Ducklings is set in the historic Public 
Garden? 

... the Institute of Contemporary Art 
first introduced Picasso to Boston? 
... Chinatown's gateway arch was a 
gift of the people of Taiwan? 
...when businessman Peter Faneuil 
offered to erect a market-house (now 
known as Faneuil Hall) the idea was 
nearly outvoted, winning with just 
367 to 360 votes?

the opportunity to get acquainted with

A Look Back At 
The Class of 1995 



For many seniors it's hard to imagine 
where the past four years have gone; 
it seems hke only yesterday that they 
themselves were just beginning here at 
Simmons College. But time does fly by 
and along the way members of the class 
of 1995 formed many friendships and 
created many memorable experiences 
that they will look fondly back upon 
when they think of the time they spent 
at Simmons. 



Below: Jen Witherell and Jen Rockwell travelled to 
Philadelphia for crew in May of 1993. Here they are 
happy to be at the Dad Vails Regatta.

Here's Looking At You 

The Class of 1995 has got "the Look" no matter 
what season or celebration. Even when caught 
off-guard they seem to always be up to some- 
thing wacky or silly and seem like they can make 
almost anything at Simmons fun!

Simmons's Life 




Life at Simmons is as varied as the 
students are them.selves. A glimpse 
into campus life can show you almost 
anything from community service to 
leadership training to travels around 
the world.

As you step into the Student Activities Office it's hard not to bump into 
one of the many people running in and out asking such questions as 
"Do you have a minute?" or "Can I ask you a question?" Once you 're 
inside the office of Robin Sitten, Asst. Director of Student Activities, 
you'll find a room that suits the hectic atmosphere. The desk and sur- 
rounding areas are covered with piles of paperwork and memos. Amid 
what seems like a million things to be done it's easy to miss the tiny 
white piece of paper in the corner of her bulletin board. It's a fortune 
that simply reads "You will make change for the better." 
Aside from her usual involvement as the advisor of the Activities Pro- 
gramming Board, Microcosm, Four-Class Council, the Box Office and 
Mother-Daughter Weekend, Robin has taken on many other responsi- 
bilities in the absence of a Director of Student Activities. Going beyond 
the call of duty, she has been busy conducting the search for a new SAC 
director, the SAC renovations, organization reactivation. Fall Orienta- 
tion 1994, and the Leadership Retreat. Robin is also responsible for the 
development and implementation of the new summer orientation 
program. 

On behalf of the Simmons community, we would like to thank Robin 
Sitten for her endless dedication . By unselfishly giving up her time and 
putting all of her effort into her work, Robin has reached out to the 
students and improved the Simmons community. Robin, you're for- 
tune is right. You have made many changes for the better and we 
thank you for your hard work and commitment to Simmons College.

of the victims.

Week, sponsored by the Health 
Center, reminded everyone of 
the extent of domestic violence.

"Coming Out, What It's All About," 
featuring a panel of faculty members and 
students sharing their experiences. The 
rest of the week was packed with 
informative programs such as a 
discussion titled "Career Issues for Gay, 
Lesbian, and Bisexual Students" and one 
with Leslie Feinberg, author of Stone 
Butch Blues. The week ended with the 
"Ten Percent Review."

the sound of music .... mostly rock, alternative, and 
rap music, of course, as Arnold Hall sponsored

Valentine's Day Ball 

February 11, 1994 



The ballroom of the Long Wharf Marriot 
Hotel was packed with Simmons students 
and their dates for the annual Valentine's 
Ball on February 11. The sold-out event 
gave everyone the chance to dress up and 
have a blast. While some people danced 
the night away, others had a good time 
just being with friends and enjoying the 
atmosphere of the Long Wharf. No mat- 
ter how they spent the evening nearly 
everyone who attended the Ball can agree 
that the event lived up to, and maybe 
even exceeded, its expectations.

end provided students with 
the chance to spend time 
with the men who have 
made an important differ- 
ence in their Hves. 





Theatrical Society's Spring Production of 



On February 23, 24, 25, and 27, the 
Simmons College Theatrical Society brought 
Neil Simon's The Odd Couple to life in 
Alumnae Hall. The tale of two roommates , 
as different as day and night, was directed 
by sophomore Jesslyn Hoeft and Dix Scholar 
Lisa Andruchow. Senior Lisa Smeester and 
freshman Nicole St. Clair gave outstanding 
performances in the lead roles. Nicole's 
Florence, insanely clean, but ever ditzy, was 
complemented perfectly by Lisa's down-to- 
earth (but often sloppy), Ohve, showing just 
how tough living together can be. Anyone 
who's ever had a roommate appreciated the 
quirks and sarcasm they brought to the 
stage. The cast also included Simmons 
students Sarah Ann K. Teuwen, Elizabeth 
Lewis, Kathylene Southard and Holly Tuth 
as the card-playing cohorts of the leads.

A Farewell to Carol Leary 



Simmons bid a warm farewell to Vice President Carol A. 
Leary on December 1, 1994 when she left to take on the role of 
president at Bay Path College in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. 

On September 12, 1994 Leary was chosen from a field of 
seventy -five applicants to fill the role of president in a unani- 
mous vote by the board . Bay Path CoUege is an all women's 
college of approximately five hundred. Leary has become the 
school's fifth president and the second woman to preside over 
Bay Path. 

At Simmons, Leary served as Director of Residence Life from 
1978-1984 and as Associate Dean from 1984-1985. She also 
served as Clerk of the Corporation and undertook her role as 
Vice President in 1988. 

Carol Leary played a significant role at Simmons and we wish 
her the best of luck at Bay Path. 





Carol Leary's contributions to the Simmons 
community were many and she will surely 
be missed as she leaves her role as Vice- 
President to preside over Bay Path College. 




"My greatest memory of Carol Leary 
was her financially helping students 
out of her own pocket. I saw that on a 
number of occasions throughout my 
six years working with her." 
Cathy Black, Assistant Director of 
Annual Funds 

"I shall always recall and cherish her 
enthusiastic support for the college's 
community service endeavors and her 
personal commitment to human and 
social service." 
Stephen London, Chair of Sociology 



"I have no idea how she seems to 
remember the names of each of the 
students she meets, but it is evident 
they hold her in high regard for such an 
impressionable feat. It was not 
surprising to see her at Women's Talent 
Night in Quadside, watching the pa- 
rade of Femme Day participants stroll 
down the hallway, or calling security at 
6:00 am to let a student into Evans Hall 
to awaken the sleeping beauties with 
the traditional trumpet revielle on May 
Day." 
Becky Dominguez, '95 



"During a time when I was unsure 
[about my major] she was really 
able to put a few perspectives in my 
mind of which direction I might 
want to go. She also gave me the 
assurance that I still had time to 
decide — that it was better to wait it 
out and know what I wanted to do 
rather than take something that I 
didn't like. " 
Violet Markowski, '95 



"Carol invited me to have a cup of coffee 
to talk about grad school ~ three days 
before she left! I met her at 7:00 am in 
the President's Office and, as she walked 
down the hall, she personally greeted 
everyone she saw, from the Fens staff to 
administrators to students. She also 
turned on the lights all along the 
hallway and taught me the secret!" 
Karen Boss, '95

Things have changed at 
Simmons since the time that 
students in the class of 1995 
were first fiUing out their 
college applications, touring 
Simmons, and making their 
decisions to attend school 
here. 

Undergraduate students 
once had the option of living 
in North or Morse Halls 
before LIFE students became 
a part of the Simmons com- 
munity and North Hall 
became housing for gradu- 
ate students only. 

Mail was once delivered to 
the bell desk in each resi- 
dence hall Bell desk work- 
ers were responsible for 
sorting mail, calling stu- 
dents to announce guests, 
ensuring that guests were 
escorted and signing for 
deliveries. While the bell 
desks were the center of 
activity, what is currently 
the mail room in Bartol Hall 
was a lounge area with 
couches and tables. 

Bartol Hall and the dining 
services at Simmons have 
gone through many 
changes. Students were 
once required to be on the 
full 18 meal plan. There 
were no bagged lunches but 
the deli bar was open during 
breakfast so that students 
could make their own 



Along with members of 
the class of 1995 Daka first 
came to Simmons in 1991. 
With them Daka brought 
many changes to the Bartol 
menu. The frozen yogurt 
and fresh-baked bread are 
just two of the things that 
were added. Ice-cream was 
formerly only available on 
Sundays until the addition of 
the ice-cream freezer. 

Students were once able to 
enter the library through the 
library doors. Checking out 
books used to mean filling 
out individual book cards 
for each book. The gates that 
closed off Beatley's circula- 
tion and reference desks 
were put there in 1993. The 
library used to open earlier, 
close later, and have ex- 
tended hours during exams. 
The classrooms in the library 
used to be much larger; 
many of them were divided 
in half during various holi- 
day breaks. 

The Fens didn't always 
accept points from Simmons 
ID'S. Students used to have 
to pay cash for all their food 
purchased in the Fens. 

Each student used to have 
keys to the front door of her 
dorm. The magnetic strip on 
ID'S were only used in 
Bartol. The ID's were thicker 
and each student got a new 
one each year. 





^ 








The Simmons parking lot 
used to have tennis courts 
in the middle of it that were 
torn down to make room 
for more parking. 

Security officers, who 
used to be called guards, 
escorted students by foot to 
the Beatley Library and 
Museum T stop on 15 
minute interval schedules. 
This was before security 
had their escort van, which 
just this year was replaced. 

Simmons once offered 
classses in Geology and 
Astronomy, according to the 
course catalog. 

Some of the residence 
halls used to have ivy 
growing on the walls. The 
southside corner of 
Simmons Hall once had a 
tree that branched over the 
Quad and there was also a 
row of shrubbery along the 
path between Simmons and 
Morse Halls. There also 
used to be a row of 
shrubbery underneath the 
Simmons Hall balcony that 
faces the quad. 

The Activities Program- 
ming Board used to have 
showings of current films in 
Alumnae Hall every week. 

Simmons College had 
always had a male 
president until Jean 
Dowdall became the first 
female president here. 

65" 



The "Administration" used 
to be defined as William 
Holmes, Carol Leary and 
Charlotte Morocco, with 
Anne Coghlan, Charles 
Mackey and John Robinson 
supervising academics. 

The cool Simmons 
hangouts were The Cask 'n 
Flagon and Who's on First. 
Landsdowne Street was just 
the back alley of Fenway 
Park. 

Visitors at the MCB were 
greeted with a bowl of 
candy at the Information 
desk; the Bookstore staff 
embraced the spirit of 
Halloween by dressing in 
costume and serving 
complementary treats. 

Things within Simmons 
were not the only things to 
change. When the class of 
1995 first entered college. 
Desert Storm was covering 
the headlines, George Bush 
was still in office and people 
were complaining because 
the price of postage stamps 
was going up to 29 cents. 
Clarence Thomas was being 
accused of sexual 
misconduct by Anita Hill. 
People mourned the loss of 
Michael Landon, Dr. Suess, 
and Jim Henson.

group for the many women who confront 
oppression in their lives and want to share 
experiences by taking direct action on 
women's issues. 

The Model United Nations familiarizes 
students with the facets of a selected 
nation and information surrounding its 
position on specific UN issues by partici- 
pating in simulated UN activities with 
students around the world. 
Voice for the Voiceless seeks to promote a 
greater respect and reverence for the 
value of human life in all stages by edu- 
cating and informing the community 
about abortion and its alternatives. 



Theatrical Society 



The Theatrical Society brings together 
students with an interest in theatrical 
performance and production. Students 
become involved in both the on-stage and 
backstage factors that go into creating a 
successful production. Specializing in 
productions with numerous female roles, 
the Society has worked with theater 
students from neighboring campuses to 
perform live theater at Simmons. Students 
of all class standings and levels of 
theatrical experience are encouraged to 
participate. This years productions were 
Agnes of God and The Odd Couple.

Academic Liaisons 



Academic Liaisons are composed of students in different departments interested in that 
department. They serve as social and resource groups where students can discuss the 
concerns of their studies and department. Together with faculty and staff, they sponsor 
social and educational activities that relate to their concentration. Membership to each 
liaison is open to both concentrators in the field and anyone who just holds an interest in the 
area. The activities sponsored by liaisons include everything from movie nights to 
job-hunting workshops to field trips. 
The recognized department liaisons at Simmons are: 
Art & Music Liaison Foreign Language Liaison 

Biology Liaison History Liaison

Leadership Retreat 



Nearly 90 new and experienced student leaders 
formed new friendships and exercised new skills at 
Briarwood Retreat Center on Cape Cod, September 16- 
17, 1994. Though the retreat was only 24 hours long, 
participants continued to refer to it as "the weekend," 
and recommended to retreat planners that a two-day 
retreat might be in order for the future. Members of 
the Student Life Division began planning the retreat in 
the summer, preparing experiential exercises which 
simulated real-life experiences in student organiztions. 
"Briarwood University" placed students in imaginary 
campus organizations and demonstrated how appar- 
ently different groups can find common projects; "Owl 
Island" challenged participants to test their skills as 
planners, coordinators, and communicators (or in this 
case biologists and physicists). There was even an 
opportunity for teams to compete on their knowledge 
of the Simmons Community and their college's history. 
But all was not hard work ~ it was, after all, a retreat. 
This year's student leaders will long remember cabins 
vs. Carriage House, the spooky haunted Main House, 
the catering line that fed the wrong way, campfire 
songs. World Championship Outburst, Dean Jordan's 
Game Boy, freeze tag, bus ride bingo, the defective dart 
gun, cookies, cookies, cookies, and other stories they 
wouldn't even tell us!

Student Publications And Media 



Microcosm provides studentswith the opportunity to 
take an active part in the production of the yearbook. 
Involved in all aspects from creating layouts to selling 
ad space, students work together to produce a suc- 
cessful yearbook. 

Sidelines, Simmon's literary magazine, serves as a 
creative outlet containing poetry, prose, photography, 
and artwork by students and staff. Published twice a 
year, it offers firsthand experience for those interested 
in literature, editing, and magazine production. 
The Simmons News, written and produced entirely by 
students, serves as an important, reliable source of 
information for the Simmons community every week.

offer. Students can work off the stress of academic life 
by running on the 100 meter track, shooting hoops on 
one of the basketball courts, or playing a game of 
squash on the indoor courts. The center also has two 
weight rooms, an indoor pool and sauna, a cardio- 
vascular workout room with bikes, treadmills, 
stairmasters, and the latest in fitness equipment. The 
dance studio provides both a place for those interested 
in dance to practice and for people to aerobicize. 
Classes in aerobics as well as those that familiarize 
students and faculty with other aspects of the Holmes 
Sports Center are offered. Students are also able to get 
lifeguard certification without having to leave campus.

gives you the opportunity to help

unfamiliar with Simmons, the campus 
and the community.
